An attractive round tour of just 15 km, which is well suited for skiing already in December. It connects the route to Isola with the Orden round track.

From Maloja you can either start at the Restaurant Longhin, as recommended here, or you can start at one of the many other entrances to Maloja. At the beginning, the route leads relatively flat to Isola, where you do a loop around the peninsula. Caution on the way back to Maloja: slow down in the forest before the turnoff to "La Palza" in order to avoid falling on the narrow bend!

Now comes the highlight of this round: high up you go through the beautiful forest. A rapid descent follows. The more leisurely final section is the circuit around Orden. Here again it is hilly and, especially in the morning, sunny and warm.

 

Author’s recommendation

In the late morning or late afternoon the excursion is sunniest.
